Spring Birds in Maryland


Week and a half ago, we finally made it back home to Maryland, and we’re catching up on life.

Here’s some of my recent Spring birds just outside my door….

  1. How wonderful Donna to be back home again, that’s so good. I checked and your books are awaiting clearance for departure by air. Not sure when mail flights to USA are happening, will check tracking every few days to see where it is at. We have been keeping your family in prayer, especially your daughter and her family. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Ashley! I’m looking forward to receiving your books for my grandkids. Thank you also for the prayers. Our daughter’s hospital is starting to show a decline in cases finally, but it’s still receiving a lot of new cases every day.

      • πŸ™‚ How quickly we get used to the warmth. We’ve had a few nights down to 45-48, and a few more coming this week. It does slow the spring flowers down a bit, which is better than launching right into summer.

  2. Thank you, Sue! Cardinals are in my top favorites. Yes, the cowbirds are common throughout the U.S. I always think of them as having dipped their head in chocolate! πŸ˜‰

    • Home now is northwest of Baltimore, I’m over 100 miles from Blackwater now. 😦 I do know Blackwater’s wildlife drive is open to visitors, but the visitor’s center & outdoor toilets are closed. Not sure I can fit in a visit before June when we were supposed to be back on the road heading west for another adventure. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Vic! She’s still on the front line, Delaware continues to rise in case. We haven’t done a social distancing visit yet with them. We’re actually in quarantine having coming back to Maryland, so finishing that up first. πŸ™‚

  3. Welcome back home. I adore the male cowbirds, they’re so beautiful, but it’s hard to capture that glossy brown cap and you did him justice! The White-Crowneds I have seen have been reluctant to engage as well. There seem to be fewer of them than last year, which might be part of the reason. Spring is a long time coming. πŸ™‚

      • I’m hoping somehow that bird populations might rebound a bit with less human activity. Have fun exploring your favorite haunts. πŸ™‚
